Sri Lanka Premier League Draft has been Postponed After Coronavirus Outbreak
The draft for Sri Lanka's upcoming Premier League tournament has been postponed, the cricket board said on Thursday, as the island nation is battling to contain its biggest-ever coronavirus outbreak. Leading international players including Chris Gayle, Darren Sammy, Darren Bravo, Shahid Afridi and Shakib Al Hasan had been up for grabs at a Friday ceremony ahead of the Twenty20 competition. But with more than 1,000 workers at one factory near the capital Colombo testing positive in just 72 hours this week, the government has locked down some regions and banned public gatherings.
